LG’s back and now they’ve shoved a whole computer into a smartphone. The LG G3 comes out in June and it possesses specs that will blow away most phones. Inside there’s a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, up to 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and space for a microSD card. The display measures 5.5-inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1440.
The G3 also has a 13-megapixel front camera with laser autofocus. Technology is pretty awesome. With this phone, you’ll be able to autofocus and snap your pic at the same time. On the outside, LG calls the brushed metal-type plastic case a “metallic skin”. It combines polycarbonate with a scratch-resistant material. Choose from Metallic Black , Silk White, Moon Violet, Shine Gold and Burgundy Red for colors.

Summer’s here and that means sweltering heat. Without the luxury of central A/C, that means hanging an ugly A/C unit out of your window or walking around in boxers the whole summer. No one wants to see you in boxers and window units are ugly. Get a hold of an LG Artcool Stylist Inverter V Air Conditioner. It’s a flat panel unit that disperses air out the sides. It’s around 5″ thick and has LED lighting. Keeps cool and looks cool.

Yes, desktop computers, people still use them. At next month’s Consumer Electronics Show, LG will put out the Chromebase, an all-in-one that runs Chrome OS, houses 2 GB of memory and 16gb SSD. Chrome OS allows instant on access to your content, which theoretically comes stored in the cloud. Therefore, the target demo for the Chromebase might be travelers, students or anyone needing a quick connection to their info.

No, the LG G Flex doesn’t feature metal claws that pop out when a telemarketer calls. So what’s up with the Wolverine reference? Well LG says the G Flex uses “self-healing” technology, much like the X-Men super hero does (in make believe, not real life). Apparently, a protective film on the back cover will get rid of scratches on within minutes. Awesome. Oh, and it’s also curved! Yes, we almost forgot, the G Flex uses a flexible OLED screen which lets the phone bend its 6-inch 720p display horizontally. Not even sure if Wolverine can do that.

Flat yet curvy is an oxymoron when it comes to women, but not so when it comes to brand spanking new TVs. LG’s OLED HDTV is not only paper-thin (4mm), it’s also significantly curvier than Leann Rimes, promising a more immersive viewing experience along with the next-level clarity of an OLED screen. The 55-inch set — and coolest kid on the block status — can be yours for $15,000. Find it at select big city Best Buys (in the fancy Magnolia section) starting in August.

So LG sent out this press release and they’re all like “Yo man, we be gittin up in this portable speaker game, dawg!” OK, maybe I’m paraphrasing a bit, but it’s true, LG’s new ND8630 Wireless Dual Docking Speaker does further solidify their entrance into this, uh, “game.” It works with both Android and iOS mobile devices, letting you wirelessly play your music from a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop PC that supports Bluetooth or AirPlay. This 80W speaker also offers a special “mood lamp” feature with a built-in ambient light sensor, so now there can be no excuses for not setting the mood right with your lady. None. [via]

There’s a little bit of pizzazz with the Google Nexus 4, and to my surprise, it’s not on the front of the phone. Baby got back! More specifically, baby got etched, layered glass that sparkles as if a unicorn sneezed on it–back. The front ain’t shabby either, with a very big 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 IPS display and chrome edging. Google says the 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor is the fastest on the market. What’s not the fastest is the lack of LTE support, but still, with unicorn spray to keep your eyes entranced on the back, you can live with that.

Now (kinda) known as Ultra High Definition, but previously (and still sorta) known as 4K, the next wave of TVs has begun to crest. And as with new tech, as it so often does, the crest costs. LG is debuting its new 84-inch Ultra High-Definition TV at the um, tough-to-manage price of $19,999.99. The set’s size and 3840 x 2160p resolution is the big draw of course, along with 2.2 stereo sound, 3D capability, and LG’s motion-controlled Magic Remote–the official remote of Magic Mike! Own it now on Blu-ray & DVD!! Hello? Anyone?
